Code Blue provides emergency shelter to homeless individuals in Central Bucks County on extremely cold nights. Doylestown Presbyterian Church serves as one of these shelters one month out of the winter. In addition to needing volunteers to help staff the shelter when it is open, Code Blue also needs assistance with things including administration, finance, supplies, transportation, community relations, volunteer coordination, training, homeless outreach, and risk management.
